About the local area

Not many people have seen the night sky in all its glory but The Galloway Forest Park has recently won a prestigious award as being only one of four places in the world to view the night sky so clearly. If you would like to see the Milky Way then come and visit!
Laggan Outdoor Centre is a great day out for adrenalin junkies and the mountain balling experience will leave you addicted. For lovers of wildlife the area is a haven and when relaxing on the patio you may be rewarded by glimpses of buzzards, roe and red deer, pheasants, swallows, goldfinches, owls and if you are lucky the elusive fox. Visitors to this area of Scotland are amazed at its beauty and temperate climate and we hope you will agree that it’s a secret well worth keeping. The coast line spans for over 200 miles with dramatic cliffs, amazing seascapes and sandy beaches, just perfect for that tasty barbecue.
During the year there is a huge programme of events from Spring Fling where local artists’ open their studios, to music festivals, exhibitions and local traditions. The annual Riding of The Marches is an exciting event and the brolly parade at Kirkcudbright’s jazz festival is a colouful extravaganza. The Galloway Hills offer exceptional walking far away from the madding crowd and for those who wish to accompany a group of walkers the annual Newton Stewart walking festival is a must. For those who enjoy a spot of line dancing then come along and enjoy the Creetown country music festival.
